It’s another holiday season, and another time to be thankful you’re a fan of a Boston sports team. While we’re still thankful for being fans of the Black and Gold, I think the Boston Bruins might have gotten the holiday mixed up a little. The Bruins played the Detroit Red Wings the other night, and they must have thought it was Halloween. The Bruins were just obliterated by a hurt Red Wings squad 6-1. Here’s the autopsy by our newest writer at Causeway Crowd, Willy. (Causeway Crowd)

“No, it was pretty much everything we didn’t want to see out there.” offered Patrice Bergeron after the team’s disastrous performance  We didn’t execute. Yeah, they played a good game but we pretty much handed it out to them.” Read the breakdown of the collapse from the Boston Bruins website. (Boston Bruins)

After that disaster, do the Bruins have anything to be thankful. Joe Haggerty over at Comcast New England made up a list of what a lot of the Bruins players in fact have to be thankful for this season. (Comcast)

Here’s how the Red Wings saw the showing. (Detroit Red Wings)

Kevan Miller was sent back down to Providence after three games. With Adam McQuaid and Dennis Seidenberg back in the lineup, it only made sense. It’s just a pity that we have such a developed team (last night’s mess not withstanding) that we can afford to send quality players back to the AHL. (CSNNE)
